Recycled Packaging FoamRecycled foam packaging is made from at least 30% recycled plastic for a more sustainable packaging choice. Using recycled plastic in the manufacture of packaging foam helps to conserve natural resources and divert tonnes of waste plastic from landfill. The recycled plastic that our range of protective foam packaging is made from is cleaned and decontaminated to a level which maintains the top performance you always expect from us. Choose from our standard 30% recycled plastic foam products, and our new 100% recycled content 'ocean green' foam packaging profiles to take your packaging sustainability to the next level. Recycled foam packaging is also a more economical choice as it is exempt from the UK plastic packaging tax, save money and the environment at the same time!
